Slim thin and Slimmest Smartphones of 2016


Slimmest smartPhone to buy : Gone are the days when you used to carry a heavy bar phone. Still people used to reckon you to be smart and trendy. But the meaning of smartness has been changed with the emergence of newly developed technology. You might have heard this already : Slim in the new sexy.

One after another, companies like Oppo, Vivo and Micromax have been innovating in their technologies and slimming down the thickness of the smartphones without cutting edges. However, the battery capacity of these smartphones can be seen inferior to the other mobiles coming even in the less price range.

I would quit my jobs, buy one of these phones, keep them charged and stick to the charger port to keep the phone alive, if I were in the chips.

But the battle is on.

But if you live in an atmosphere [place] where you always have a charging port around, you will never regret buying any of these slim phones on account of having less battery capacity. Another option is to keep a high capacity power bank in your pockets.

OMG sarcasm. 😛

So let us consider various smartphones with the least thickness and amazing features across the world.

The current leader in terms of having quality Camera phones, Oppo, launched Oppo R5 in October 2014, comes with 5.7 inch screen with the resolution of 1080 pixels by 1920 pixels. It works with android version 4.4 with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage which can not be expanded further. It has a rear camera of 13 megapixels and front camera of 5 megapixel. It measures 148.90 x 74.50 x 4.85 (height x width x thickness) and weighs 155.00 grams.

I would list it the second slimmest smartphone in the world that you can rely upon. Many more chinese brands claim their smartphones to be the slimmest smartphone followed by Vivo X5 Max but those names are not reliable enough. And I am not very likely to buy any of those slim phones even if they are fit for my pocket.

Oppo has a brand value that I/you can easily trust.

I play Asphalt Airborne 8, GTA 5 and many more games that need a high end devices to be run and my Micromax Sliver 5 float seamlessly. The smartphone has only 2GB of RAM and 16GB of Internal Storage and the device runs on Android Lollipop.
